It really is phantastic, Heidi! Although I have to admit I'm green with envy. I really do find it difficult to understand how someone can actually enjoy noseclipping when after so many attempts I still find it impossible to persevere. The fact that my nearest and dearest won't go anywhere near me when I'm wearing a noseclip certainly plays an imporant role in this, but even when I'm on my own I feel very edgy with it on and certainly don't enjoy eating (but maybe therein lies the secret  :lol:). Having said all this I am really happy for you!

Thanks everyone.  I stick around because you all are such great friends and good support.  Pinkmug and nougat, I've been enjoying the discussions on mothers and yogurt making on your threads.  I just haven't the time to join in.  My new hooping addiction takes up most of my spare time.  :D

Maychi, nose clipping gets much easier with practice.  And those nearest and dearest get bored and tolerant with enough exposure.  Or even supportive and encouraging if they see the results.  But maybe nose clipping isn't right for you.

Thanks IndianGirl.  My mother is very critical (but I always knew that she really loved me).  Her mother (my grandmother) was unbearable (though I was close to her, too).  I have worked very hard in my life to tame my own critical and judgmental nature -- but it's still there.  :)  But I see that those traits come out of pain and suffering.  I do my best to practice compassion and kindness toward everyone including myself.  But sometimes it's easier to be kind from a distance.  I don't know that I could take care of my mother like Pinkmug.  And if I had your mom, I'm not sure that I'd be able to help her out at all. 

In recent years my relationship with my mother has completely healed and transformed.  I feel incredibly close to her and have long conversations with her 2-3 times a week.  On the rare occasions when she's critical or tense it seems to roll off of me and not hurt me like it use to.  I thought for sure that my mom had softened and mellowed.  But according to my sisters and dad she is tense and critical as ever.  It's just my relationship with her that is really different.  My mother has a lot of physical illnesses and lives in a lot of physical pain.  Plus her mother was incredibly verbally abusive to her.  My mother has way more energy, zest for living, and stamina than I do.  I have come to admire her greatly and cut her a lot of slack for her physical and emotional pain.  She's a survivor. 

Here's a poem that I composed about her:

STILL SINGING

My mother loves
babies and children,
pansies and lupine,
beaches with their chests full
of joyful shells and drifting woods,
earth’s cornucopia of artistic creation.

She works enough for five
with one broken body
and a spirit that never surrenders
duty.
Children fed.
Messes cleaned straight.
Holidays entertained.
Gardens planted.

Fueled by loyal determination
and a bird’s deliberate song,
she welcomes each rising dawn
ready to go – find the bargain of a lifetime.
She gives you (and wants your) details: 
who goes where with whom,
what they eat, buy, or view,
the story of any quaint place passing by
when driving somewhere to come here.

My essence abides in the shadow of her life,
where my valleys roam up her mountain
and my mountains drift back to her valley.
An ebb and flow of space does not separate
mother from daughter
mountain from valley
beach from shore.
Each relies on the other for its identity.
Like a stream followed back to its source,
we owe our lives to an unconditional sacrifice
of mothers and earth.

Winter bleeds her sorrows into spring.
When abandoned
my mother never gives up
hope.
All that she loves return to her.
All whom she loves come
Home.

Lovely Heidi. :)

You are an old soul.

Seems like you are putting into practice many lifetimes of learning.

Heartfelt poem, Heidi! Its nice that you feel "My essence abides in the shadow of her life" about your mom.

You are right about it being easier to be kind from a distance. After I started living away from my mom, I have become capable of exerting some patience with her.

Thanks everyone.  The positive feedback is much appreciative.  It's hard sharing poetry.  It feels so intimate.  My mom loved the poem and was surprised by how well I'd captured her essence.

Beautifully written poem, and I mean it - I studied literature including poetry galore in the old days - I can tell good poetry from bad and this is GOOD poetry! Congratulations on your talent Heidi!!

One of these days I'll translate a poem for you. It's a "poem to Mother" by a great great Portuguese poet, my 2nd fave and it has a special meaning for me (my DS offered it to me illustrated with pics of him, some years ago).

An ebb and flow of space does not separate
mother from daughter
mountain from valley
beach from shore.


 This is remarkable, congrats, feel free to share more  :D


P.S. Oh good, I found the poem already translated to English on the net!! Here goes:

Poem to Mother


In the deepest of you,
I know I have betrayed, mother!

All because I no longer am
The sleeping portrait
In the depth of your eyes!

All because you ignore
That there are beds where coldness doesn’t linger
And rustling nights of morning waters!

For that, sometimes, the words I tell you
Are hard, mother,
And our love is unhappy.

All because I’ve lost the white roses
You clenched to your heart
In the portrait with the frame!
If you knew how I still love the roses,
Maybe you wouldn’t fill your hours with nightmares...

But you have forgotten many things!
You have forgotten that my legs grew,
And that all of my body has grown,
And even my heart
Is now huge, mother!

Look - do you want to listen? -,
Sometimes I am still the little boy
That fell asleep in your eyes;
I still clench against my heart
Roses so white
As the ones you have in the frame;
I still hear your voice:
Once upon a time there was a princess
amidst the orange trees...

But - you know! - the night is enormous
And all my body has grown...
I left the frame,
I gave my eyes as water to the birds,
I shan’t forget, mother.

I keep your voice inside me.
And I leave you the roses...

Goodnight. I go with the birds!
